As we dust off our Kerrang! Awards hangovers this morning, Enter Shikari are waking up with a brand new shiny Kerrang! Award, winning ‘Best Single’ for this years ‘Anaesthetist’ release.
Focusing on the song’s subject matter, frontman Rou Reynolds said from the stage.
“This song is about the NHS. The reason I’m alive today. I’m sure many of us have had amazing experiences, maybe some not so many amazing experiences as well but that’s because the Tories underfund it every year without a doubt. So big up the NHS!”
The band were also up for Best British Band are presented ‘The Relentless Award’ to friends Rolo Tomassi.
